I'd say no, not that you are incapable or anything, I just know that **** never goes according to schedule or plan.
So iow your exhaust will get there 3 days after you leave or something like that.

I've already paid for Hallett though, so hopefully I could "take rotation" and come back for a week, build the car then, then go to Hallett to rape and spit.

I dunno, can you? It's 100% possible in one day with the right person/people.

If you haven't gotten it installed in 365+ days, what makes you think it'll happen in only 3?

Stressing new kits on track before properly tuned, thats always a good idea, if you like melting ****.

But if you have a reasonable base tune and don't get too boost happy, rock on.

Motor swap and mabe bolt the turbo on, if you work from sun up into the night. You could pay 350 to 400 and have the motor put in. And then bolt the turbo on. Atleast you would be through with it.

Tuned enough to get around town, sure, if you call in the locals. Tuned well enough for track abuse? I wouldn't even try.

Hustler >> Haven't cared to be bothered about what ecu you will run, thought it might be something with a base tune.
No rockets, surgeon in 5 years or so.

I'm going to try. I won't drive it vigorously until I get it on a dyno.
